It is already 20 July, and your Chaos Scribe has been busily painting and converting Chaos Squats. But we have reached the point where all the finished Hungry Ghosts have been discussed, while there are many more in progress. However, to conquer his self-imposed hurdle of 5 posts or more per month, your Chaos Scribe will take you on a tour of Space Dwarf miniatures from beyond the Citadel & Iron Claw Squats series. Then we will return to the new members of the Hungry Ghosts legion.
We will start with the first, and the worst. In the early 1990s a company named Enigma Miniatures produced a variety of chunky, heavy sci-fi gaming miniatures, some of which ran afoul of Games Workshop's intellectual property lawyers. Today, we look at the first Enigma subspecies.
You can see why GW had some issues with these: out of a universe of possibilities for Space Dwarf designs, they go for beardy little space bikers. These guys are made of a harder metal than Citadel, chunky and prone to scratches. Compare them to our Standard Squat Servitor (aka the S3 unit):
There is our S3 on the right, smaller, thinner, less round, and more detailed. Here are some closer photos at the Enigma biker-style space dwarfs.
These are the 5322 series Space Dwarfs with Power Gloves. Back view is below.
Below are the 5321 Series Space Dwarfs with Shotguns and Bulletproof Jackets.
Next are the 5320 Space Dwarfs with Flamer and Blaster.
Finally for the bikers series, what I believe are the 5323 or 4 Space Dwarfs with Rocket Launchers or Heavy Bolters, but without the weapons. Front:
Finally, one more comparison to our S3 Unit to illustrate scale:
These guys are just too ugly and too unimaginative to bother painting.
